With visual distinction, comfort and style, Lud'o begins a new chapter in the evolution of contemporary sitting.

A relaxed armchair. Innovative in its design and in its construction. A suptle shell dressed in a padded cover with textiles made out of recycled plastic. Hip and socially responsible. A simple operation can completely change the Lud'o's character, giving it a different look. A personality. A change of season. A season for a change. Not a removable upholstery but a wearable upholstery, characterized by one's mood and the option of choices.
